Yep, that breaks just about all the rules of good web design, not to mention it also breaks all the rules of good taste, digital or otherwise.

does it have music? i don't have speakers here at work. websites with any sound that plays without asking me first, even if it's the website of my favorite band, are a definite don't. always annoying and often embarrassing.

I love the VSBA website, have loved it for years. It's so totally VSBA, not the sparse grey-and-cream orthagonal coolness that is the equivalent of the iconic sophisticat-architect-dressed-all-in-black.

Rock on VSBA.

from the "who we are" section:

"That they have found Rome, art history, and unmodern moderns such as Lutyens helpful has confused even admirers. In some ways it would have been better if they hadn't written about it. They might never have been credited with unleashing Postmodernism, a charge comparable to calling Thomas Edison the father of disco.”

Awesome.

I use AOL Shield. My friend uses AOL Gold. We feel that the spell check feature of Shield is better than the one on Gold. It should make clear.
